Possible to have 2 days tour to visit Mt.Fuji & Alpine route

On next 21st April I have a plan to go to Tokyo for 5 days, the first 3 days I have a bussiness meeting, and another 2 days 24th & 25th April I have plan to go Mt.Fuji and Takeyama Alpine Route.

Woul you please teach me..., It's possible to have 2 days tour for Mt.Fuji and Tkeyama Alpine route (Tokyo - Mt Fuji - Takeyama Alpine route - Tokyo) ?, I will back to Indonesia from Tokyo on 26th April morning.

And if possible, what should I take for the ride ? and hoe to purchase the ticket or other acoomodation?

Thank you in advance for your kind attention and help.

Best Regards,


Hi David,

Visiting both Hakone and the Tateyama Alpine route in two days is a really packed itinerary and I don't think that you would have enough time to enjoy either one. Given the choice, I would pick one of them and make the most of you visit to one. For instance you could spend the two days around Hakone one of the best areas around Fuji and there's a lot to enjoy there, including nature, onsen en a magnificent view of Fuji.

Visiting the Alpine route really requires a bit of preparation, most people spend the night close to the Alpine route, start early and then sleep at the end of it. Travelling back to Tokyo on the same day would really make you hurry all day and it may just be too much.

All the best!
